Sometimes the autofocus doesn't work. It is switched to af. When I turn the camera on it will normally focus but after 1 or a couple of pictures it will not autofocus. If I move the switch to Manual I can take the picture and then if I move the switch back to m/a it will focus and keep focusing and I can take a few few more frames then then the auto cocus stops working again and I have to switch back to M and so on. I never know when it wount work. Thank you.

My Sony DSC-W130 camera when turned off will not turn back on until I remove the battery and reinstert . Also if the battery is not removed it will drain after a period of time. It is like the On/Off switch is not properly turning the device off and as such when you attempt to turn on again the restart function for the software in the camera does not execute properly. I have recently started using soem OEM batteries as well as the supplied SONY batteriers at times. . Maybe this is effecting

Arcsoft webcam companion 3 photo capture keeps turning itself on when I am trying to use monitor function. It has worked fine in the past (I use it everyday when I leave the house) until I unplugged the camera overnight. This also happens when I switch user accounts. The capture function just turns ifself on and takes pictures, even when I close the program. It will turn itself back on and do the same.

Flash Error Hi there, bought this camera about 6 months ago. I'm intermittently getting a problem with the pop-up flash. It pops up fine, but the screen gives me an error telling me it hasn't and won't take any shots. Have to keep switching it off and on and hoping it will work again. Sometimes it's a couple of days before it works again. It will take shots when I switch the camera to the 'no flash' setting, so it does seem to be just the flash. The error says that the flash release is jamming,


The error 5 can mean that there is something blocking the flash from popping up. If it is up but still get the message then you need to check to see if the little black pin/stick that lets the camera know that the flash is up, is not stuck. With the ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
